Fuck you FF.net. Really, fuck you.

Because you love me? Because I am your absolute favorite little sister in all of the world? Because I will send you cookies?

You can make your own damn cookies.

You I might consider giving cookies, since I wouldn't have to waste money on postage.

Heh, my post about it was pretty much the same as yours, though I think mine was titled "Burn in hell ffnet!"

I feel your pain, I really do. They did this sometime last week; I'm still not done fixing my stories there. And the bitch of it is that they don't seem to care! This is what they had to say about it:

We do not support dash or other character based section/scene markers. If you wish to create a separation in your chapter, please use the officially supported horizontal line feature in our document editor or in your favorite word program. Using unsupported section markers will only make your entries less compatible to future upgrades. You can create the horizontal lines in Microsoft Word or OpenOffice by typing 3 or 4 consecutive dash/hyphen keys and then hitting enter. The site will correctly recognize these scene breakers when you upload them.

So basically it's like "oh well, fuck you, deal with it"... *ugh*

And for me, it's not even about the tremendous pain in the ass it's been to go back and reup all of my chapters so I can add stupid line breaks. It's about the fact that as a READER, I know how much of a pain it is to read a story when it doesn't have the breaks, and THEY DON'T CARE!

They couldn't even be bothered to give us a heads up so that we could have fixed it beforehand.

yeah... I think I'm done posting new fics there. I have a link to my LJ in the profile, I'll just mention that if they want to read anything else, they are welcome to come here and do it.

**hugs** and Good luck!

Those liars! I was using the official Microsoft Word line breaks. *seethes*

I think I, too, am only posting new fic on my LJ. I do not relish the idea of re-formatting ever damn document I put up there.

*plans to scribble FF.net on all targets next time I'm at the range*

Probably not.

You ready to swap yet?

*pats you on the head* Calm down. They're going to send you to more anger management sessions.

You are never going to let me live that down, are you?

You have to admit that, from our point of view, seeing you, little, scrappy, scrawny Ember completely lose your temper like that was, well, very amusing.

Nope. It was fucking hilarious.
